A director tries to make a documentary about a mysterious woman, and ends up a character in his own film.

Going out every night is not only a way for Laura to keep her glamorous life alive, it is also her survival strategy. Distanced from her family, Laura has found a community among the party crashers, the benevolent restaurant staff, party hosts and organisers of New York city. Shot over12 days Laura is an actress constantly playing for the camera, seducing us, eager to show us her unique way of life. Gradually, it becomes apparent that all is not as it seems - Laura is broke, and lives in a tiny room, sharing a communal bathroom. Nevertheless, she continues to walk a delicate tight rope of her own making: her evenings spent amongst New York's high and mighty while she daily cheats total poverty. Into this world walks Fellipe with his camera. Soon, they find themselves involved in a cat and mouse game, a power struggle over who is the author of this tale.
